Red Goes to the Air for 21-8 Victory Over White in Spring Game


PITTSBURG -- Anthony Abenoja passed for 238 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Red squad to a 21-8 victory over the White team in the 2011 Pitt State Football Spring Game at Brandenburg Field/Carnie Smith Stadium Saturday (Apr. 30).

Abenoja tossed a 55-yard touchdown strike to wide receiver Aaron Sawyer on Red's first possession. He added a 46-yard scoring toss to wide receiver Andrew Castaneda in the second quarter to give Red a 14-0 halftime advantage.

Abenoja, who finished the game 10-for-20 passing, added a 37-yard scoring throw to running back Zachary Waranch in the third quarter.

Red finished the game with 234 yards of total offense. White limited the Red squad to minus four yards rushing on 17 carries, thanks in large part to five quarterback sacks.

Zac Dickey played just one series for the White squad. Tanner Bailey played the remainder of the game under center for White.

Bailey completed seven of eight passes for 51 yards, including a late touchdown pass to wide receiver Levi Kuntzsch. Bailey and Kuntzsch also paired up on a successful 2-point conversion try.

Joe Uzzel led the Red squad with nine tackles, including 1.5 tackles-for-loss, while Luke Stringer added seven stops.

Gus Toca recorded four of the White team's five quarterback sacks. Toca made six total tackles, including stops behind the line of scrimmage totalling 27 yards.
